This year, Kane Brown will spend much of his summer on the road with Jason Aldean on his Ride All Night Tour. It’s a throwback to a couple years ago, when Kane also opened Jason’s They Don’t Know trek.

Both artists agree they were eager to work together again.

“Me and Jason are really the same guy,” Kane asserts. “We’re super laid-back, and then we both change once we get onstage.”

“And we relate to so many things,” he adds. “We like to do the same things. We’re both [Georgia Bulldog] fans, so we love watching football. He’s just — yeah, he’s basically a big brother to me.”

In fact, the “Good as You” hitmaker says he’s already benefiting from what he learned from the ACM Entertainer of the Decade on their last run together.

“I learned that energy is everything in a show, and it was because of him,” Kane tells ABC Radio. “You know, he’s a great mentor, and if I ever have any questions, I just go to him and he always has the answer.”

Later this week, Kane, Jason and Carly Pearce play Syracuse, New York; Columbia, Maryland; and Holmdel, New Jersey.
